Vintage 2007 was challenging for viticulturists throughout Australia. The early onset of winter in 2006 restricted vine carbohydrate storage prior to vine dormancy. Thus, the initial spring growth of 2006 was limited, resulting in low bunch numbers. The potential harvest was further reduced by several severe overnight frosts in the last week of October. Compounded with the widespread drought, it was a test of perseverance for many vineyards. Harvest was generally two weeks earlier than average, due to the light crop levels and warm weather during January and February. However, the reduction in grape harvest tended to increase fruit flavours, developing into wines of great intensity.
